There are few albums which I can truly enjoy from beginning to end without feeling the desire to skip a track or just switch off. However, listening to 'At First Sight', I was taken on a beautiful journey through ambient techno which delivered to the end. The melodies throughout work cohesively with some fantastic string compositions and cosmically evocative soundscapes.

An excellent release which I highly recommend to anyone who appeciates listening to techno. This album in many ways sums up my perception of Jeff Mills's sound and ranks alongside my other favourite album of his being 'The Other Day'.

This album deserves a much higher rating. Perhaps, a significant proportion of those people who are into the harder, rhythmic 'Bells' type tracks just don't walm to this more cerebrally stimulating style. Personally, I love both :)

What a good album this is, filled with varied kind of expressions, musics that evoke victorian streets and its 19th century life, other musics will sound dark, make you imagine you are inside of a haunted places, other musics will play with colors and lights, also there´s a strong presence of sci-fi tunes. Again this is another album that can be a good soundtrack for black & white mute movies. my favourite musics are "Illusions" and "Fantasia" they sound very colorful, melodic and in a relaxing way.

Jeff Mills delivers some decent ambient techno, and it really shines towards the end on tracks like "Masterlight" or "Fantasia". The earlier tracks leave something to be desired, however. Not one of Mills' strongest works.

Personally I was looking for a CD that has harder techno than ambient techno, like his Purpose Maker Compilation, but this is a CD that reminds me more of his "The Other Day" compilation. This is a fantastic CD if you are looking for more ambient tracks than hard techno tracks. The track I've heard most in his mixes from this CD is track 13 "See this Way". I actually do like this track however it does sound Egyptian or something.

In my opinion, this is the definitive Mills album. It goes from raw, minimal and distended funk to spacey and adventurous science fiction landscapes to lush and melodic, string compositions which just tug at your heart. Trademark Detroit style music with the flair of veteran savvy from someone who's been there from the beginning. This one is sure to please home and dancefloor music enthusiasts alike.

Jeff Mills best album to date . He changed his studio into a digital production place and the intense , packed and excellent sound must be listened to at highest possibe volume . No 1 Techno record in 2002 (imho).
